Amazingly Anna Nicole's funeral and burial seem to have gone off without a hitch. Now that she's at last properly buried we can finally get on with our own lives and stop thinking about that unfortunate bombshell. Oh wait, this is America, and the point of burial is traditionally where the fun begins! I'm getting ahead of myself, first, the funeral recap:
When the onlookers saw Arthur arrive at the cemetery, they booed. They cheered when Birkhead stepped out of his limo. The guests disappeared under a green tent that covered the gravesite amid tight security. Smith was being buried in a tiara and custom-made, beaded gown, said organizer Patrik Simpson of Beverly Hills, Calif.Right on crowd, Virgie is a total fame-mongering hag, and plus, she dissed your beloved homeland, what the Germans (who couldn't possibly be evil) call Das Bahamas. I have to admit, the tropical island vibe in this whole story is a definite plus to an otherwise sordid affair. I'm not sure why, but I find stories set in tropical "paradises" really really really cool. I like that they cheered for Birkhead. Of all the people in this awful mess, he really strikes me as being pure of heart. Sincerely!
Anyway, more on the funeral:
Hundreds of islanders and tourists crowded behind steel barricades outside the church. Rock guitarist Slash, formerly of Guns N' Roses, was spotted going inside.Right on Slash. Got to pay tribute where tribute is due. How's Velvet Revolver going, anyway?
"Her soul is at rest now. I am satisfied," said Tanisha Grant, a local restaurant owner who was friends with Smith. For the funeral, Grant wore a short black cocktail dress that Smith had given her a few months ago, telling Grant it no longer fit her.Good for you, Tanisha. I, however, will not be satisfied until later this week when the Broward County Medical Examiner finally announces his findings in the Anna Nicole autopsy, and until Dannielynn's custody has been firmly granted to the lovable and good-hearted Larry Birkhead.
BTW, I can now confirm that "Christie Rathgaber," is "a 59-year-old nurse from Columbus, Ohio." So her royalty comments were as sacrosanct as I implied. Whatever sacrosanct means.
